Are you wanting to improve your relationship with yourself, your family, friends, and/or romantic partner? Do you struggle with anxiety, depression, unresolved grief, or trauma? Through therapy we can work towards healing, while identifying underlying thoughts and patterns in order to achieve long term progress. Gaining insight about our own internal "blue print" can afford us the ability to make changes that can potentially change the direction of our lives. I take a very eclectic approach, as I utilize interventions from various theoretical approaches, in order to tailor therapy to each particular client.

I have extensive clinical experience working with individuals struggling with relationship problems, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, anger management, domestic violence, trauma, and abuse.
There are several important factors to consider when deciding if you should seek therapy services. These may include subjective distress, changes in life functioning, and other persistent symptoms that were not present before. It is normal at times to experience dissatisfaction, unhappiness, particularly when under stress or during major life event. However, if these negative changes in your life persist for weeks, months or even years, this may indicate that you might benefit from therapy.

I have expertise in working with depression, anxiety, life transitions, family dynamics, trauma, and maternal mental health among other things.
My goal is to help people with the many facets and challenges life may bring. I believe in empowering a person to take control of their life and working on issues that they may have struggled with and could be affecting them. The vulnerability of welcoming a child into a family, having lost a loved one, divorce, depression, relationship problems, or life transitions may bring up unresolved issues and new challenges, but it also provides an opportunity to heal and stop cycles of intergenerational trauma and ultimately provide healing. The goal is to help you thrive just not survive in life.

I see psychotherapy as a collaborative process in which everyone has the potential to find their own solutions and make positive changes but may just need some guidance. Whether your therapy goal is to learn how to better cope with relationship issues, life transitions, grief/loss, or even thoughts of self-harm, I can assist and walk with you on that journey. I have a special interest in working with the emotional aspects of women's health issues such as difficulty conceiving as well as perinatal/postpartum depression and anxiety.

Sometimes the home you grew up in was not ideal and your early environment did not help you become the best version of yourself. Our early experiences can leave a lasting negative impact. You may grow up with poor self-worth, mood swings, and relationship problems. Sometimes, bad things happen in adulthood and are difficult to comprehend. Either way, trauma, depression, and anxiety can take hold and eventually the meaningful aspects of your life (going out, seeing friends, holding a job) start shrinking while emotional pain continues to grow. Therapy can help stop this process and help you reclaim your life.

Being able to move through new positive changes with out the stress and worry about how you will be perceived seems like an impossible task, but it is possible.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Whittier. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
